Art & Music: Boom Bip & Charlie White ‘Music For Sleeping Children’

‘Georgia’ from Music For Sleeping Children project.

Music for Sleeping Children is a new collaborative art/music project from artist Charlie White and musician Boom Bipa series of dance tracks based on in-depth interviews of American teenage girls with accompanying photographic images. The music will be made available for free download via www.musicforsleepingchildren.com from 29th October. Read Charlie White’s interview with Artinfo.com here

Each of Music for Sleeping Children’s five tracks captures the essence of a different teenager, from the privileged and popular Georgia musing on the importance of being liked, to the sultry and complicated Isabelle recalling her melancholy crushes of freshman year, to the neurotic Sabrina planning her life in detail yet fearing failure at every turn. The original interviews were painstaking edited and set against the pin-sharp Boom Bip productions they inspired, whilst the visual element was born out of White’s intensive photographic study of a teenage girl living in the isolated suburbs of southern California.

Initially available as a free download, a vinyl release featuring all 5 instrumentals and original tracks will be available in early 2013.
